My hyperventilation over S. 714 is getting better as the bill was sent back to Judiciary Committee to be revisited. Normally, when bills pass 2nd reading, they breeze through 3rd as a simple procedure. I was prepared to make a last plea to the Senate to at least pause to consider the slippery slope we are heading down. Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. McConnell found it necessary to make the motion to recommit. The role call vote won 41-0!This fight may not be over, but we will have some time to educate the public of this possible Constitutional Crisis.
